Carrot Soup

Makes: 5 bowls

Description: Homemade soup is a cinch to make, especially colorful carrot soup that has the added bonus of using up any random root veggies left in the fridge. Made with just a handful of ingredients, this soup is economical, vitamin rich and creamy, without containing any dairy products.

Ingredients:
1  large onion diced
2  cloves of garlic minced
2  tablespoons olive oil
1 tbs  tablespoon all-purpose flour
4-5  cups low-sodium chicken stock
4-5  cups carrots, chopped into 1-inch chunks
2 tbsp  fresh ginger, minced
1 tbsp  turmeric

Instructions: In a large, heavy-bottom soup pot over medium heat, sauté onion, celery and garlic in olive oil until soft and translucent.

Blend in flour and enough chicken stock to make a smooth paste.

Add the rest of the chicken stock, carrots, ginger and turmeric. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for about 30-45 minutes, until carrots are cooked through and soft.

Purée soup in small batches using a blender or food processor.

Return puréed soup to pot to reheat, adding more stock if a thinner soup is desired.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    The first step lists sauteing celery... but there's no celery listed in the recipe. I could just wing it, but I'd love to know how much celery is actually recommended...? thanks!

    Great fall chili that is kid friendly because it isn't too spicy. Lots of great flavors and uses the number one fall ingredient - pumpkin!
